How Does Qkids Compare to Other Companies? (Qkids vs SayABC)

When comparing Qkids to other side hustles from home such as SayABC, Qkids exclusively hire North Americans and have stringent location requirements. These may severely limit teachers travel, which is one of the main perks of working online.

However, if you are a North American or Canadian teacher with no intention of moving around, Qkids is still a great alternative, and better than most other platforms out there.
